Recent food poisoning scare has forced Burger King and McDonald to stop serving sliced tomatoes on its sandwiches until they are able to source tomatoes that meet their safety and quality standards. The toll from salmonella-tainted tomatoes has jumped to 228 illnesses as of yesterday. However, it is known that tomatoes with vine still attached are not likely to be the source of outbreak.
Thus, even though I am not traveling to the US end of this month, it is still quite important to have travel health insurance in order to cover any unexpected incident which might ruin anyone’s holiday. Of course, it is definitely the best to have nothing happened but travel health insurance is a way of assurance and protection while enjoying our holiday.
